9.0

As a rabid fanatic Cote Rotie man, of course I enjoy this, hits all the notes one would expect, it’s just not a virtuoso. — 2 years ago

C.V.N.E. (Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España)

Monopole Rioja Blanco Viura 2016

Crisp steely stuff. Nose shows a beautiful depth of citrus fruit. The palate has a great balance of fruit, acid & salinity. This producer makes makes great wine across the board. This is a hauntingly beautiful record. Reminiscent of Leo Kottke & John Fahey in a slower tempo. Almost ballad-like guitar work from a virtuoso. — 4 years ago

Kongsgaard

Napa Valley Chardonnay 2018

Kongsgaard - always a privilege and pleasure. Such complexity even in its youth. Full on Burgundian textures multi layered palate with flinty entry and beautiful full bodied orchard fruits on the palate. Virtuoso stuff. — 2 years ago

Clos de Malte Santenay Chardonnay 2011

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this afternoon with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our conductors are David Newman and John Williams are leading a diverse program of cinematic works composed by John Williams entitled "Across The Stars: Music Of John Williams". We'll enjoy pieces from Star Wars (various episodes), Harry Potter, E.T., Memoirs of a Geisha and many others. All works to feature the violin virtuoso, Anne-Sophie Mutter, a personal favorite soloist of ours on these hallowed grounds. Mr. Williams has rearranged many of the selections today to better feature Ms. Mutter, an exciting afternoon will lay ahead. 🎼🎻

A nicely aging monopole Chardonnay, loving the lightly oxidized yellow fruits.

Nose has oxidized, yellow apple skin peel, papaya and medium oak more notable today than prior bottles, albeit not distracting but embracing.

Palate has creamy, tropical fruits, over-ripe lemon and light minerality.

Just an exceptional bottle, likely the best of all the 'Clos de Malte' 2011's we've enjoyed to date.

Amazing is selling it short, listening to Mr. Williams telling stories on stage, he's got the whole audience laughing!

Here in LA there are usually a few John Williams conducted Hollywood Bowl performances each summer—I haven’t been in years but you’re reminding me I need to go! So many light sabers, so little time...

"Les Voisins" Yorkville Highlands Syrah 2015

Virtuoso Syrah. Love the bright red berry fruits on the front end and the balance throughout. Nice silky tannins and a modest finish. A 30 minute decant made a world of difference. — 2 years ago

Nose has mashed strawberry/banana and cut red delicious apple.

Palate has sweet strawberry, banana peel, ripe red currant and light green herb notes.

The wine is 100% DeChaunac, a more common varietal for colder climates, like Ontario; fruit is sourced locally (FLX region) from Sheldrake Point.

The 2018 may just be the finest version of this wine to date, so juicy and expressive on the palate, just beautiful for this warm afternoon.
